Rohit Sharma had an excellent display of skills at the 2019 World Cup where he scored five centuries-the highest by a single player in the mega event. He was at his brilliant best but fell below par in the all-important semi-final against New Zealand. India lost by 18 runs with Rohit managing just a single.
This poor run was taken to the T20I and ODI series against the Windies where he scored one half-century in the 20-over format and failed with the rest of the games. Will he prove his mettle in the two-match Test series against Jason Holder and Co beginning today 22nd August at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua? The stats from the outcome will tell.

Even at that, people still read funny meanings to the event. There is this belief that Rohit Sharma was hiding his tommy. This led to him been strolled on Twitter.
